Abstract [sv]

The family and relatives caring of older people in Sweden lies on an old tradition. By legislation the responsibility for the older people has gone through a development from the family to the society. According to the new social service law (2000) it is not that clear that the utmost responsibility lies on the society. According to the social service law ( 5th chapter, 10 §) the municipality should ease things up by giving support and relief for relatives taking care of older people, prolonged ill and function disabled people. The purpose with the study was to examine how the family care givers are finding their everyday work and their experience of the support that the society is giving. The study we aims only to the family care givers who are taking care of people over 65 years of age. A qualitative method was chosen and six family care givers were interviewed. The result, that is divided into categories, shows that in spite of mental and physical load the experience of family care givers work is positive and likewise the support from the society. But there are reasons to raise the quality on the support being offered, because the quality is crucial whether the relative should use the support.
